About CFAC

Connecting Through Food

The CUNY Food Advocacy Collective is a student-focused, student-led group committed to raising awareness of the food crisis at CUNY and working toward a more equitable food system on and off-campus. Our aim is to open a consistent and ongoing dialogue between and amongst students, CUNY faculty, staff, administrators, elected officials, and community organizations while uplifting the most marginalized voices.

We envision changes in our food system to look like: policy changes in support of food democracy, reducing stigma around food insecurity, fostering overall wellness – including mental health support, and creating autonomy for the community. We are committed to empowering student-led initiatives that aid in our vision of sustainable food sovereignty for all.
